Attendees can learn about environmental assessment of the Interstate 95 corridor between Route 17 in Stafford and Route 3 in Fredericksburg

FREDERICKSBURG — The public is invited to attend a citizen information meeting this week to comment on an Interstate 95 Access Study.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have initiated a study of the I-95 corridor between Route 17 and Route 3 in Fredericksburg.

The purpose of this study is to analyze impacts of proposed access and capacity improvements and connector road to I-95 between Route 17 and Route 3.

An Environmental Assessment (EA) is being prepared for the project in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This EA will build upon the I-95 Planning Level Access Study and Interchange Justification report recently completed by the Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and George Washington Toll Road Authority.

Maps and documents related to the study will be available for review, and VDOT staff and consultants will be available to answer questions.
